To mark 70 years since the release of the XK 120, Jaguar’s first sports car, a special version of the F-Type - the ‘Chequered Flag Limited Edition’ – has been released. Based on the R-Dynamic F-Type model grade and available in both coupe and convertible form, the Chequered Flag can also be had with three different engine specifications and carries a number of subtle interior and exterior design touches. POWER TRIO The F-Type Chequered Flag Limited Edition is available with either the 2.0-litre turbo four engine or the 3.0-litre supercharged V6 in two different output levels. The 2.0-litre engine, along with all F-Type engines for 2019, has had particulate filters added to reduce emissions and meet Euro 6d regulations.

jaguar creates f-type rally cars

In a further celebration of 70 years since the release of the XK 120, Jaguar has built two rally cars based on the F-Type convertible. A popular and successful road car, the XK 120 was also rallied with some success in the 1950s, including outright wins in the pan-European Tulip Rally (1951) and RAC Rally of Great Britain (1953). An XK 120 also completed the tough Alpine Rally three years in succession from 1950. The pair of F-Type tributes use design touches already explored on the F-Type Chequered Flag Limited Edition (see lead News item) and have also been mechanically worked over by Jaguar Design and Engineering. The modifications meet FIA specification, so, theoretically, these F-Types could compete in international rallying events. Based on the 221kW 2.0-litre turbo fourcy-linder F-Type convertible, the rally-inspired…

The first ever one-marque auction conducted by RM Sotheby’s saw more than 50 Porsches sold, along with related parts, memorabilia and collectables, at a special event on 27 October, including the unique ‘Project Gold’ 993-era 911 turbo created by Porsche as part of their 70th Anniversary celebrations. GOLDEN SALE As featured in JUST CARS #274, Project Gold – or ‘2018 Porsche 911 Turbo Classic Series “Project Gold”’, to give it its full title - was an 18-month project by Porsche Classic, the company’s in-house heritage division, using an original 993-era 911 body shell to make a new version of a model that’s been out production for two decades. While the interior and running gear were mostly authentic for an early ’90s 993, they were built using all new parts, with the twin-turbo 3.6-litre…

lamborghini create ‘sc18’

Lamborghini’s Squadra Corse racing division unveiled the ‘SC18’ on 19 November; a model they say is the first one-off racer in the division’s history. Built to customer order by Squadra Corse, with input from Lamborghini’s Centro Stile in-house design studio, the SC18 is road-legal, but was created specifically for use on the racetrack. Powered by the same tweaked V12 used in the Aventador SVJ, the SC18 puts out 574kW (770hp) at 8500rpm and 720Nm of torque (531lb/ft) at 6750rpm. The ‘Independent Shifting Rod’ optimized seven-speed gearbox delivers all that power to all four wheels, while a model-specific exhaust system provides what Lamborghini says is a unique design and sound. Top speed and 0-100km/h times have not been revealed, but with the SVJ completing that sprint in 2.8 seconds, the SC18 would most likely…

monroe t-bird sells for au$620k

A 1956 Ford Thunderbird originally belonging to Marilyn Monroe came close to setting a new record price for the model at a recent California auction. As previewed in JUST CARS #274, the car was bought new by ‘Marilyn Monroe Productions’ in December, 1955, and came highly specified with the ‘power pack’ 312ci V8, Fordomatic auto, power assistance for the steering and brakes, electric windows and power-operated seats. Finished in Raven Black with a complementary soft top and removable hardtop with the distinctive porthole windows, the car was reportedly driven personally by Monroe on a number of occasions before it was gifted by the Hollywood star to a colleague’s son in 1962. The car was restored by the consignor, but the ‘touch points’ were reportedly left unrestored before it came to the Julien’s Auctions…
